The rate of youth using alcohol for the first time doubles in the months of June and July, largely due to summer being an unsupervised time when teens are alone or with their peers.

Happy 4th of July, everyone. I hope the fireworks, family, friends and food was as amazing for you as it was for me.
It’s not very often that I get to sit in on a professional press conference but the opportunity presented itself last week when Sycamore Hills hosted an event for several media members in the region at their clubhouse in support for the upcoming PGA event in September.
As the NBA goes, it will never be as popular as the NFL. The Heat and Spurs gave it a good go on Thursday night, however, leaving basketball fans breathless with big shot after big shot ending with LeBron and company’s second straight title.
If you’re like me and you don’t live in Miami, the outcome of the game probably made you sick to your stomach.

I already know what some readers will think when I write this but it needs to be said anyway...
Adams Central’s run in softball and baseball was phenomenal. Period.
Say what you want, non-AC fans. Tell me I’m a traitor for liking the Jets more than Bellmont or South Adams. Remind me that I graduated from there and clearly still have too much invested at that school to properly cover all three schools equally.

The recent passing of Carl Bennett at the age of 97 may well have taken the last living link to Zollner Piston basketball in Fort Wayne.
The Pistons, of course, played for years in Fort Wayne under the stewardship of industrialist Fred Zollner and were the key reason the Memorial Coliseum was constructed. Zollner played a major role in the merger that birthed the National Basketball Association (NBA); in fact, the deal was hammered out in his home.

Donald Westlake was one of the greatest crime authors to ever put word to paper. His books have been turned into numerous films, but most have been based on the character he created under the pseudonym Richard Stark. That character's name is Parker and such films as PAYBACK and POINT BLANK have been about him but never used his name. That changes with the release of PARKER.

Summer is usually hot. I say "usually" because Indiana doesn't seem to understand seasons and likes throwing whatever weather it wants at us. But I digress. Summer is usually hot.
